Welcome to the Isle of Wight Cats Protection

Your local Isle of Wight Adoption Centre was formed in 1961 and has been caring for cats for over 50 years, helping and homing on average 500 cats and kittens every year. It's hard to believe this small island has such a large cat population. 

At our centre, we have cats of all personalities and ages, so there's bound to be the right companion for you. (Do check out our Adopt a Cat page, where many of our lovely cats are featured).  Visitors are welcome to come in and meet the cats in our 'Homing Wing' of 28 cat pens, where the cats are cared for by dedicated staff and volunteers. 

We also have a small reception shop with litter trays, bowls and toys and lots of CP Cat Gifts for the devoted cat lover, plus our on-site charity shop, where you can grab yourself a bargain.

We're open every day (apart from Tuesdays) from 11am - 4pm.  When you arrive at the centre, just make your way to reception and one of our helpful team will happily show you around. (Unfortunately we do have some building work going on at present, which is causing a little bit of disruption, so please bear with us if there is a bit of a delay).   We, and our cats, very much look forward to welcoming you!




Cats Protection is a leading authority on cats and we offer an array of cat care information via our publications, website, Facebook and Helpline. We promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.
